One question may loom larger than any other in this election cycle: just how much does traditional politicking matter? Both campaigns have placed large bets on diametrically opposed answers, seemingly without hedging them much, if at all.
Joe Biden, his campaign, and the DNC insist that voters wont respond to in-person appeals such as larger-scale events and door-knocking. They have directed most of their money to national TV ads and national messaging, although last week began to explore some rudimentary door-knocking. Team Trump, the RNC, and especially Donald Trump himself all insist on traditional events, door-knocking, and more granular personal-contact efforts, while arguably underfunding the TV campaign.
With that as the status quo ante, Team Trump and the RNC doubled down on their GOTV strategy, the New York Times reported tenfold, according to the numbers:
Demoncats are throwing this election
Still running bullcrap polls nonetheless
This year I increased that 10x over, spacing it out. Glad to see that it is being well-spent. Might contribute some more. GO TRUMP/PENCE 2020!!!!
My daughter is going door to door in the City of Phoenix for the Susan B. Anthony pro-life organization. She gets as many door responses as you would expect. Not all, but most.
Just focus on hitting your turn out numbers. 3.am in PA and 2.4M in Michgan. Polls are silly. Hit your numbers and you win. Turnout! it largely doesn’t matter what the candidates do or say (see Biden’s primary). Ground game and turnout. That’s the game
Very good to hear. That’s what will win the election. Enthusiasm matter if that turns into volunteers and door knockers
Doing it this way, the media/Dems will have an easy time revving up their “protestors” when Trump wins. The low info voters/protestors will have been convinced Biden was winning, so when Trump wins they will go into a rage thinking (won’t take a whole lot of thinking because the media/Dems will be telling them it was stolen) the election was fixed. Nice little way to start a war.
Guam is a military base and I'm sure they would vote Republicans.
What's good for the goose...
I saw a tweet from some mainstream outlet or other that Trumps campaign is pulling ads in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin now, in addition to Iowa and Ohio. Seems like a bad move to me. Is the campaign going broke or have they simply decided digital GOTV is more effective?
I have seen the add pulling story from Ohio and Iowa, which looks like locks for Trump. Doubt it on MN, MI, WI,,,,
GOTV is more effective. And let’s stop this nonsense “campaign is going broke”. There’s roughly 25 days left, they’ve got access to all the resources they need for a 25-day sprint.
I’m glad that the Trump campaign is learning from Romney’s mistakes. Beating Biden in the get out the vote push is crucial and will overcome whatever the polls say.
Don’t watch networks, can’t on the golf course, do get messages on cell.
GOTV = Get out the vote
I am up to 1,696 since Aug 19. Goal of 2,000+ by election day
They need to do something so I hope this helps.
